My home reading program is here! Reading is essential in our children’s lives and I am thrilled to bring a fun and create program forward.  A few years ago, while I was a Instructional Support Specialist in the Fort Bragg Schools, I created monthly reading calendars for the elementary school. Recreated in a new and colorful backdrop, my home reading program, available for a variety of ages, is fun and interactive.  You will see sample each month of the new reading calendar available and a link to my Etsy page to download.  For more information on how to start a home reading program please check out my home reading brochure. Or click on my Etsy page for more information.

Who has signed up to Read for the Record with the  Jumpstart Campaign on October 27, 2016?  I just received my books in the mail which reminded me to set up a reading event in the community.  Yesterday, I sent off a couple of emails to my children’s teachers and ordered them each a book for their classroom.  I love this program which is so important for young readers.

This year’s book is The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach. This adorable story is about a mischievous bear on the adventure of a lifetime.  Travel with the bear on his adventure to the big city and back home. There are a load of classroom and at home materials to accompany the book on the Jumpstart website!  Enjoy, happy reading and let’s Read for the Record!!
